For the past several months politicians like Bernie Sanders have been ringing alarm bells about the very real possibility that Donald Trump and his administration may attempt to contest the results of the U.S. election and refuse to leave office. In recent years, we have seen that when our national and state politics fail to function democratically, the only thing that can put democratic control back in the hands of the people is working people.
We know that only workers taking mass action can force legislators to respect democracy and we must be prepared to act if Trump refuses a peaceful transition of power. Join us for a discussion with labor leaders who have organized mass worker actions in response to political crises. We will review what workers have done to fight off attacks from our own government in the past and provide tools to prepare to fight off future ones.
Presented by the Emergency Workplace Organizing Committee, a collaboration between the Democratics Socialists of America and United Electrical, Radio and Machine Workers of America. With leading labor activists including Sara Nelson, International President, Association of Flight Attendants, CWA.
